    I found some people who's 5770 idles at 35C with the stock cooler, mine idles at 50C and full loads at about 70C. I have seen more people who's card runs at 50C could it just be the bad cooler and those few people were just lucky?

    That is normal for the XFX version. XFX makes their 5770's look like reference coolers, unfortunately they are cheaper.

    So basically a slap of copper taped to the gpu would be better than this...

    if your concerned about them look at a GPU Cooler at newegg or trade the card off for another model

    I think that case air flow also matters. If your case has poor airflow, temps would be higher than a guy with a HAF, FT02 or something else.

    My 6770 Vapor-x idles at 40C, FYI.

    EDIT: Noticed that you have a HAF so yeah, those temps are somewhat high.

    In what sense? 50c idle and 70c load isn't going to do anything to the GPU, the temps are perfectly fine.

    OP they may not be what you want them to be but as mentioned there is nothing to worry about, if it bugs you then you could bring the temps down a few degrees by adding some arctic silver and creating a custom fan profile.
    Sir B. Fannybottom says thanks.

    My case is closed, has a 92mm exhaust at the back and a 120mm at the top and I'm getting 40C idle. Granted, it's an HD6770 Vapor-x but I would expect a 5770 installed in a HAF to perform better even with just the stock case fans. Maybe I worded my sentence wrong, should have written "seem somewhat high for your setup".

    Anyway, those temperatures are within the operational range of the GPU, as you said, so it doesn't mean that it will melt or something.

    Thanks! At what temp should I be worried?

    95'c is when you should start thinking about it

    but no harm will be done to most graphics cards below 105'c

    XFX tech says ATIs are good till 110C
